the Alpine Butterfly Knot... versatile... it even has a lower-case o

Our Christian Writers topic for this month… “The 9’s” … guess where my mind went… “The Neins” … which in German means “not.” (the cardinal number 9 is actually “neun” in German). I tried to put serious thought into the use of not… Why Not πŸ™‚

Absorbed in the train of thought – To Nein… or Not To Nein… that is the question…

Why Not?

Well, for starters, Nein is a negative. I always want to be in the positive. That is a really good reason Not to Nein…

and just when life seems perfectly peachy… it happens… Β here come The Neins.

These “Neins” are sliding to the other extreme from the optimists… they’re the pessimists.

I could head off into a corrosive diatribe about The Neins… but I’m Not (hee hee)

How to handle The Neins?

I came up with 2 choices…

– My first choice is to overcome The Neins with goodness. Yep, that’s using your mojo… and it’s our motto… this is possible and likely in many scenario’s… bingo… or Bravo Echo Foxtrot Tango… dress it up with love like a flamingo… top it off with a glowing halo… disguise it all incognito… make it silly giggle as in jello… spice it up with oregano… or a delicious warm bowl of Spaghetti O’s (ooops, I mean o’s)…

be patient, and if that doesn’t work…

– Reduce, or, if necessary, Eliminate some of it… tune it out (lower the audio)… remove it from close proximity (relo)… that’s correct, an embargo… send it down the Congo… pronto…

However, if neither choice works, you’ve pretty much run out of options… but be at peace and don’t let it drive you loco… like the entire WWW must think of me after reading this one πŸ™‚

Any other lower-case o’s on overcoming The Neins?
